Seasons of Change provide something for all:

A unique mountain retreat that offers not only first class accommodation but also the ability to walk and ride on our 400 acre conservation land and for those who wish to wander further, the land also adjoins the 28,000 sq miles of the Pisgah Forest. Milima Ranch truly is a destination of 4 seasons. The winter offers some exceptional snow days and the landscape transforms into dramatic scenery that reveals the very backbone of the land which is hidden in the lush months of the summer.

The spring, summer and fall months yet again present an ever changing canvas of the mountains and the wildflowers are a sight to be seen. A special treat starting in September is the ripening of the apple trees that are scattered throughout the 400 acres, followed shortly after by the fiery fall leaf season.

Romantic, Outdoor/Active or Nature Getaway:

The cabin lends itself equally to a romantic getaway for a couple or a gathering of up to 10 people without compromising comfort or coziness. The split level offers privacy and comfort and a cozy corner or porch for everyone.

For the Outdoor enthusiasts there are many trails throughout the 400 acres that offer a nature lovers paradise. The wildlife and rare botanical species abound on the conservation land which protects the watersheds that are the source of Fines Creek and The Pigeon River.

Perfect for Family, Corporate or Group Retreats:

Milima Ranch offers another cabin which can be made available for larger gatherings. The cabins are conveniently located to each other and yet secluded.

For those who wish to sight see, convenient access off I-40, only 5 minutes from exit to entrance, allows for quick trips to the surrounding attractions, including Asheville and its famous Biltmore Estate, Waynesville, Maggie Valley's Cataloochee Ski Area, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Great Smoky Mountains and Lake Junaluska to name a few. These areas offer activities for everybody including skiing, fishing, white water rafting, canoeing, zip lining and many more.

Pure Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we were blessed with the most incredible time at Milima ranch. This time for 11 glorious days. This is by far is our favorite vacation rental. The setting is spectacular. We never tire looking out at the mountains on the screened in porch. Or sitting around the fire inside or outside the cabin. The stream that runs along the side of the cabin is just Heavenly. Thank you Georgina for all that you and Arturo do to preserve such a special place. We hope to see you again next year!!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The house is incredible. The land is incredible. The landscape is incredible. The views from the porch are incredible. The service is incredible. The privacy is incredible. We visited for a week with 4 adults and 4 teens and everyone loved it. Clearly marked hiking trails lead right from the house. All appliances have written instructions on how to use. Every seat and bed is so comfortable. And wi-fi/cable TV available when you've had too much togetherness.

Stay here if you can!

Peaceful and serene

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our week at Moonshine. The owners of this home have found the way to blend luxury and comfort. Everything is top quality, but no one felt that they could not kick their shoes off and relax. Plenty of space for 2-3 couples; very well equipped kitchen--from top of the line appliances to nice dinner ware. Comfortable beds, nice towels and linens, very nicely appointed all around. Being from Florida, we really relished our mornings and evenings on the screened porch, which has a comfortable sectional couch. The grounds are just beautiful--flowers everywhere, beautifully groomed, trails to walk, a stream to explore, and a level yard for the kids to play. We enjoyed walking down each evening to visit with the cows. A bit remote, which was what we were looking for, but an easy drive to Waynesville.

What A Wonderful Week it Was

  • 5 of 5

When I say we loved our stay, it's an extreme understatement. The house, the property, and the surroundings are nothing short of magical; I described them as such in my first Instagram post upon arrival. I do believe the exact hashtag was #heavenonearth. :) The Moonshine cabin is exquisite, and you will be treated like royalty by Georgina and Amber. I HIGHLY recommend this little slice of perfection to anyone who desires a mountain getaway that is relatively close to big cities and events. I would go back in a heartbeat! My husband, my sister and brother-in-law, our children, and I all had the best time making memories at Milima Ranch.

Magic in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been to Milima ranch a few times and it is magical. We have been blessed to travel as a family to many beautiful places like Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico, but Milima is our favorite. The setting, view, hiking, fresh spring water and surrounding attractions put this mountain paradise in a league all of it's own. If you love the outdoors or if you have never been able to connect with the outdoors, this place is for you. It is nothing short of a spiritual experience as it seems to transform you to appreciate how blessed you are to experience such beauty this side of Heaven's gate. I know my family carry little piece of this place in their hearts and when things get challenging in our daily lives, we all go to Milima in our mind as our happy place to comfort our soul.

Owner's Response: I am the one that is blessed to know your family and have you as my guests since inception. It has been a journey... After renting Moonshine for 2 seasons I decided to move the rental up to MilkyWay and see what all my guests enjoyed down by the stream! Well it is time to open it up again, keep it in my family, but share it with others. Maybe one day I will claim it for my own but for now, onward! I look forward to see you all this coming October and as always, look for the new subtle upgrades coming to Moonshine, MilkyWay and Milima Ranch.
